Discovery TV's American Guns, shop break-in...

Gunsmoke, the FFL/retail gun shop & gunsmithing office in the metro Denver CO area, featured on the popular(but no longer airing, ) TV series; American Guns, had a break-in.
A group of banditos cut a hole in the property's roof to gain access to the $$$ & firearms/ammunition.

They were caught on scene I think but I'm still looking for media details.

The TV series is no longer on the Discovery line-up but I think it may return.
I liked the show but many gun owners/Denver area residents say Gunsmoke isn't all that great. I'm not in CO so I couldn't say.

They weren't caught. They got away in a silver car. Rich Wyatt says the security cameras got good looks at them, though.

No links?

Looks like 12 handguns and 3 rifles stolen. I liked the quote from Wyatt...

"The Wheat Ridge Police are doing a great job of hunting these ignorant wretches down and I can't wait until they catch them," Wyatt said.
Its very hard to know just how good of a job the cops are doing until the results are in. As for being ignorant, apparently they knew enough to get 15 guns and get away from the crime scene. They seemed to know how to get into the store quite readily as well. That isn't ignorance.

12 pistols and 3 rifles, that's 14.5 million in rich Wyatt pricing

Hope they're caught

The show was like watching a train wreck

Yes it was not the best perception of gun dealer flying around in his helicopter with silver bars and piles of money to buy over priced guns .
Think most watched for his wife and daughter who were putting on there own show ... LOL

And, I think that's a good place to end this thread before people get into trouble for discussing things that aren't firearms related... such as the daughter.

If anyone has any updates going forward, they can go into a new thread.
